Your Attorneys for Postnuptial Agreements in Pembroke Pines, FL
You likely know about prenuptial agreements, often called “prenups.” However, many people are unfamiliar with their close relation postnuptial agreements.

Prenuptial agreements are essentially legal agreements concerning finances in the event of a divorce that are set before marriage. Postnuptial agreements, by contrast, are made after the couple is already legally wed, and thus the spouses owe some measure of fiduciary duty to each other.
